Core objective:

  • Assessment of the realisable mid-term potentials (up to a time horizon of 2020) for various renewable energy options at global scale.
  • Contribution to the analysis of the effectiveness and the efficiency of currently implemented renewable energy policies and measures and the corresponding future prospects for renewable energies in global markets.

Content:

  • Assessment of the realisable mid-term potentials for renewable energies in all energy sectors (electricity, heat and transport).
  • Geographical constraint: all OECD and BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) countries.
EEG is solely responsible for the administration and elaboration of all individual project tasks.
